When I start a post with so many AKAs known already you know it’s going to be a long one.

*nmp* is a new one to me for what I am assuming means “not my photos.” Even if it was widely known what nmp meant even spelling it out doesn’t matter – you can’t use photos to advertise your own work without permission from the copyright holder. Full stop.

There’s at least one post in a local group that was found with stolen wedding photos and no disclaimer about these not being her photos and I’m sure there’s more that I haven’t been sent (yet).

One thing I noticed when searching this photographer out is that she posts *everywhere* so check your local Facebook Groups to make sure she’s not in there. She’s based in North Carolina but I found posts in Pennsylvania, New York, Montana, Tulsa, Colorado, Tennessee, Salt Lake City, Pensacola, Chattanooga, Outer Banks, basically everywhere in the United States she’s in a local wedding group.

While the copyright infringement is the main story here, there is also a side story that Courtney allegedly has a history of not delivering photos/is slow to refund and is why she’s changed her business name in mid 2023 after conversations like this popped up in local groups. This story is at the bottom of the page with the update.

Update 1/29/2024:

It turns out the above was just the tip of the iceberg and there’s a lot of people out there who have had issues with Courtney.

In summary – she has allegedly canceled many times on clients at the last minute for boudoir sessions and weddings. She has allegedly sometimes sent in subpar photographers but sometimes she hasn’t sent in anyone at all. This girl allegedly gets covid a LOT. She allegedly rarely delivers albums. She allegedly owes a LOT of refunds.

She also posted this as an excuse before unpublishing her Facebook page.

In searching this person out I also found SO MANY other photographers using some of these images. So… there may be a bonanza soon on this page.

I stopped sourcing because I have a meeting but I’m sure there’s more. I’ll dig in if needed later.

Updated 5:30EST:

Pinterest is for inspiration to be LEFT ON PINTEREST. It isn’t an image vault for you to use any image you find to plop on your Facebook/Instagram/USession page to advertise with.

I am amused she removed *most* of the Pinterest photos but still has one left I didn’t call out that I didn’t find the first go around. I added it below.

Update @ 6:30PM EST

Yo, Carly, sweet cheeks.

*I* made the blog post. Don’t come after the people you stole from.

PS Facebook Page Discussion

I’ve had this person submitted to me many times over the years but it always seems to hit whenever I’m swamped with work or just don’t have the time to really dig into it.


I have a boatload of submissions to work on and I guess we’re starting here.

Brianna sure likes her watermark. Shame it’s on photos she didn’t create but she sure acts like she did. They are mostly stock images but as you’ll see you’d never know it if reading her post about it. Most of these are also on her Instagram but I only showed the top one there.

You know how much I love fake stories and Brianna does too! Alexa + Eli huh?? The original photographer is Russian so I’m going to guess that they didn’t hail from Seattle…

Reminder if you’ve somehow missed it but I’ve now started a Substack and have been writing a bi-weekly newsletter about Photo Stealers, industry news and copyright stuff.

Another day, another fauxtographer thinking that no one will notice if they use someone else’s images to advertise for their own sessions.

After working on this one for about 12 hours I had to call it quits.  There’s tons more on her pages still so make sure to look to make sure your image isn’t there.
